Breakdown Direct APP

About the Breakdown Assistance APP

We've developed a Web APP to help you quickly get assistance when your vehicle has broken down. Because it's a Web APP it means you don't need to download it to use it and it will work on almost every smartphone connected to the Internet.

When first going to the APP enter your vehicle registration number to retrieve your policy details, you can also add the APP to your home screen (recommended) so it's quicker to access it when you really need it.

The map on the APP will track your location and when you click the 'Broken Down' button try to match your location with the closes street address it can find. You'll also be given the number to call for breakdown recovery so use this, the address you're given and the location on the map.

Using the Breakdown Direct Assistance APP

  • Before using the APP you will need to input your Vehicle registration number to retrieve your policy details
  • Once your policy information had been retrieved you can view your current location on the map page
  • Click the 'Broken Down' button in the top right of the screen to pinpoint your current address and get phone number for breakdown recovery
